Item 5.07 Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders


On April 28, 2022, Activision Blizzard, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), held a special meeting of stockholders (the “Special Meeting”) to vote on the proposals described in the Company’s definitive proxy statement filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on March 21, 2022.


Each of the proposals upon which the Company’s stockholders voted at the Special Meeting, and the final, certified results reported by the Company’s independent inspector of elections, American Election Services, LLC, are set forth below.


1. Adoption of the Agreement and Plan of Merger (as it may be amended from time to time), dated as of January 18, 2022, by and among the Company, Microsoft Corporation and Anchorage Merger Sub Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Microsoft Corporation (the “Merger Agreement”) (the “Merger Proposal”).


For     Against     Abstain     Broker Non-Votes  
  539,332,512       8,847,849       786,522       0  


The Merger Proposal was approved by the Company’s stockholders at the Special Meeting.


2. Approval, by means of a non-binding, advisory vote, of compensation that will or may become payable to the named executive officers of the Company in connection with the merger (the “Merger-Related Compensation Proposal”).


For     Against     Abstain     Broker Non-Votes  
  357,220,104       189,741,964       2,004,815       0  


The Merger-Related Compensation Proposal was approved by the Company’s stockholders at the Special Meeting.


3. Adjournment of the Special Meeting to a later date or dates, if necessary or appropriate, to allow time to solicit additional proxies if there are insufficient votes to adopt the Merger Agreement at the time of the Special Meeting (the “Adjournment Proposal”).


Because the Company’s stockholders approved the Merger Proposal, the Adjournment Proposal was rendered moot and not presented.
